Syslog Virtual appliance fails to run

Postby rzsmith » Fri Sep 25, 2009 11:50 am

We have downloaded and attempted to run the syslog appliance on both ESX 4.0 and ESX 3.5 but these fail with error messages similar to other have reported here.

Error message on VM startup is:

Failed to open disk scsi0:0: Unsupported and/or invalid disk type 7. Did you forget to import the disk
first?Unable to create virtual SCSI device for scsi0:0,
'/vmfs/volumes/4a07e12a-1c4d7411-eac4-0015c5f3c6b7/syslogappliance/Appliance-OS.vmdk' Module
DevicePowerOn power on failed.

We have tried using 'Buslogic Parallel' and 'LSI Parallel' controllers in the VM definition but consistently get this message. Can you advise how to get this running please?

Had the same problem. Try using vmware converter, free download, and it should work.
